We continue our boys basketball coverage for Gold Club members with a final look at the state’s top college prospects in the junior (2017) class. Our final 2017 Cal-Hi Sports Hot 100 for the 2015-16 school year shows six newcomers since our winter edition. Our final 2015-16 rankings for the 2018 and 2019 classes will be published by the beginning of the summer live period on July 6.

The final 2017 Cal-Hi Sports Hot 100 is based on evaluations from the entire 2015-16 post-season (from final round of league play to the CIF State Championships) through the Spring Evaluation for unsigned seniors and Summer League period for returning players. Our post-summer Cal-Hi Sports Hot 100 was based on last year’s summer evaluation period and showcases. Our winter rankings for the class of 2017 was based on performances through fall leagues and the 2015-16 regular season.
We’ll follow this report with our final 2015-16 player rankings for the 2018 (Top 65) and 2019 (Top 25) classes. In the coming months we’ll continue publishing our archived Hot 100s as part of the most comprehensive California state player rankings you’ll find on the Internet that you can sort through using the easy-to-use dropdown menu below.
The previous ranking in the final 2017 Hot 100 refers to the player’s position in the winter Hot 100 we published in February. To see where California players place in national player rankings, check out the Hoop Scoop, our partner for boys basketball national player rankings.
The 2017 class doesn’t have much movement at top, but expect some movement in our first 2016-17 rankings after we evaluate prospects in the all-important month of July. The first of the three NCAA July viewing periods begins on July 6. It runs through July 10, then there are two off days with the second period running from July 13 through July 17. The final period takes place July 20 through July 24.
A couple of the top players in the class recently made their college commitments and both attend Sierra Canyon of Chatsworth, which should open as a top three team in the state along with Bishop Montgomery (which returns five starters) and defending mythical FAB 50 national champion Chino Hills. Point guard Remy Martin (ranked No. 10 overall and second among point guards) made a commitment to Arizona State and off-guard Adam Sieko (ranked No. 24) is bound for San Diego State. Martin is the fastest point guard in the state, end-to-end, and Seiko is a physical specimen who has been an underrated contributor to an excellent team the past three seasons. If Sieko were part of basically any other program in the state he’d be a star and an all-state player, the latter which he could be as a senior.
